Literacy Development: A Story of Community Support.
Schwartz, Mary Arnold
Since her involvement (as a 16-year-old) helping women get to their English-as-a-Second-Language classes, a graduate student and writing consultant has puzzled over the question of how to facilitate literacy. People need literacy for economic betterment. Literacy becomes a way out of psychological distress and a way of making sense of the world. She found that English Literature and Anthropology are invaluable tools for making sense of the world, both internal and external to the self. Literacy is something both gained and used in order to know the world. Teaching English Literature provides a support system to others so that they might know the world and themselves better. (SC)
